Putang Yang Yuebin to help the Zuo Zongjian military affairs, that is This aims to divide Zuo Zongtang, Mutu, Yang Changsheng and other knowledge. "At this time, Zuo Zongtang is still on the way. After arriving in Fujian, he learned about the truth and made a range of correct deployment. After capturing Keelung on October 2, the French army enclosed Taiwan on October 23, causing the Taipei Prefecture.
Taiwan is the throat of the South and South Seaway, the relationship is very large, but because the law force is blocked, it is difficult to compete.

Take care of: "The old nine recognizes my evil? I will not be old nine, the old nine brother is dead, I am the old nine brother (ie Zeng Guofan).
"Zeng Zengyi (Zeng Guofei understood it):" This trip is the sea, the Association is a small brother.
"Talk to Yan, ask the old nine-one life?:" MFO, murderers are hemp.
"Zuo Laugh:" I said that the old nine talents will win. "Zuo Zongtang arrived in Fuzhou," I am worried about my worries. "The day calls in the camp:" The baby is changing, and the food footshew shoes will be won today.
"It’s not full,:" The baby is in Fujian Province, the year of the year ":"
":" Today is not allowed to stay in the New Year, come out, the foreigners take the year to fight Xiamen, the baby is out, I am currently enemies.

"About Zuo Zong Pai Yang Yuebin led the secret to Taiwan’s things. When he sent Yang Yuebin to Taiwan, he was" confidential ", Yang Xin god, for a while, come to Zuo Zongtang’s" disease " .
Zuo Zongpei sent people to provoke.
Back to report: "Yang is serious, do not allow outsiders, only see ‘supply the bait on the side’." Zuo Zongtang suddenly realized, "Yang Yuebin has gone!" He used a "installment". On the way, Yang Yuebin is very similar to the sputum. After arriving at Taiwan, I played a "empty city" of a bluff, making the French people a horror: "I don’t know where this army came.
"In the heroic anti-attacking of my country’s military and civilians, France’s violations of Taiwan have been shameless.
However, because the Qing government’s sales countries surrendered, finally leading to the end of China’s unbeaten, France is not victory.
After the "Medium-French Tianjin Treaty" in the mid-purpose, Zuo Zong is full of indignation, and the Qing court is secretly Chen, "It is advisable to carefully, and the anti-soldiers are difficult to avoid".
Since then, he has repeatedly sparse, asking the Qing court to negotiate with France, immediately return Keelung and Penghu to maintain the integrity of the territory of the motherland.
